Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter has declared economic warfare on gun retailers, threatening to treat them like businesses who traded under Apartheid in South Africa, by withdrawing investments in companies that refuse to stop selling semi-automatic rifles and blackmailing retailers into becoming front line facilitators for gun control. “Mayor Nutter this morning announced something he’s calling the “Sandy Hook Principles” – a list of 20 measures to curb gun violence – that companies making or selling guns and ammunition must support to avoid “economic divestment actions,” reports Philly.com. Watch the full video of the Mayor’s speech here. The 20 principles (PDF) include targeting businesses who sell “assault rifles” (despite this being completely legal) as well as “the distribution of any materials/information that may be used to assist in such conversion.” CONTINUE . . .
